PRESCHOOL SWIM (AGES 3 – 6 YEARS):
The Preschool Swim Classes are offered to give young swimmers a head start to learning to swim independently! Students will participate in the class without a parent in the water. Please read the descriptions of each class to register for the appropriate skill level. We recommend that you schedule a free swimming assessment if you are unsure of your child’s ability level or if this is your first time taking classes at Ida Lee. Each level is based on a skills progression and may need to be repeated until the student is comfortable enough to progress to the next level.

All of these classes are held at the Ida Lee Park Recreation Center Indoor Pool.

For more information about programs offered at the outdoor pool, please look under the AV Symington Aquatic Center.
